Seeking Study Participants: Female Survival Sex Workers



Female RESEARCH Participants Needed

Do you have experience using harm reduction strategies in the survival sex trade?

I am a Master of Social Work student at the University of British Columbia. For my graduate research course, I am conducting a study entitled "Harm Reduction Strategies in the Survival Sex Trade: Hearing Women’s Voices."

You are eligible to participate in this study if:


  • You identify as a woman aged 19 years or older 
  • You have engaged in work in the survival sex trade within the last ten years 
  • You can speak about a harm reduction strategy that you use in the sex trade 
  • You speak and understand English 
  • You are willing to provide up to 1 hour of your time to be interviewed 


You will be given the option to review a written analysis of the study’s finding. Total maximum time commitment (including review of the analysis) will not exceed 2 hours.


$20 cash will be offered in appreciation of your time and participation.


This study is being supervised by Pilar Riano, Associate Professor, UBC School of Social Work, pilar.riano@ubc.ca.
